On Tuesday 6th March 2018, Ghana will turn 61 years since it attained independence on March 6, 1957 from British after close to a century of colonial rule.
Then Gold Coast, Ghana was the first Sub-Saharan African country to become independent on the back of Ghana’s first President and his Pan-African ethos, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
The celebration will be marked with the traditional march past and parade at the iconic Black Star Square.
It appears the feeling is already in the air with the herald of the 70th anniversary of the 28 February Christiansborg, Crossroad shooting.
The event which is celebrated every year to honour the three ex-servicemen who were killed in 1948 by the colonial police, while marching to the Osu Castle to present a petition to the then Bristish Governor, will see a lot of activities this year.
